    These stories never end, and unfortunately while many are upset with this and that we are wasting billions in the mideast.. and looks like no one cares and it will never end.

    I always find it interesting that no one in the Beltway ever wants to f...ck with the Dyncorps, Xe's, Wackenhut's of the world, but will go after small time crap in the name of integrity..

    Your families are getting gang raped by the corporatists, miliitary industrial complex, big oil and the power elite daily and no one pays attention.. the lobbyists are getting fat, along with Congress...

    The Struggle to Police Foreign Subcontractors in Iraq and Afghanistan - The Center for Public Integrity

    On the heals of this Billions wasted in the rebuilding of Iraq.. it goes on and on, do you think that the Gulf Coast could have benefitted from a 165 Milliion Dollar children's hospital???

    It doesn't matter, Darryl, there's a Democrat somewhere who admitted that she gave 5 $1,000.00 scholarships to 5 kids she knew personally.

    How could you even hope that war kickbacks would ever overshadow such a grevious misuse of power like the one I just mentioned?

    Far prefer a war cheaper than the Obama stimulus package to another 9/11.

    According to what now? You libs like to keep trumpeting that we keep creating terrorists... the terrorists came first and attacked us! They despise our non-compliance with sharia law! Before we went Iraq and Afghanistan, even Iraq the first time, they were trying to kill us.

    Re: For all of you fiscally conservative folks.. more and more corruption in the Mide

    according to the spokesman for the TALIBAN....

    Taliban Using Mosque Controversy to Recruit – Newsweek Snow Report Blog

    “By preventing this mosque from being built, America is doing us a big favor,” Taliban operative Zabihullah tells NEWSWEEK. (Like many Afghans, he uses a single name.) “It’s providing us with more recruits, donations, and popular support.”

    “We talk about how America tortures with waterboarding, about the cruel confinement of Muslims in wire cages in Guantánamo, about the killing of innocent women and children in air attacks—and now America gives us another gift with its street protests to prevent a mosque from being built in New York,” Zabihullah says. “Showing reality always makes the best propaganda.”



    . We didnt get attacked First....that sjust when YOU became aware of the situation. This BS propoganda war between the US and the former CIA operartives known as "Al Qaeda" goes back a hell of a lot longer than 9-11....longre that the cole...its more about the aftermath of teh USSR invasion of Afghanistan, the protection of Kuwait, and the energy pipelines from the caspian sea. You are swayed by the propoganda, just like the recruits of the Taliban.

    congrats.

    Marine bombings (I assume youmean the Cole)....Bin Laden (AQ)
    Lockerbie bomber (Former Lybian INTEL officer) captured, released...
    9-11 (tortured confessions) nobody claimed them....odd isnt it?



    you obviously have a difficult grasp on the definition of the word "Conspiracy" don't you?


    ALL of thsoe things are a conspiracy, unless youthink each of the perps acted alone....

    Actually by the Marine bombings I meant this...

    1983 Beirut barracks bombing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "The organization Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the bombing, but that organization is thought to have been a nom de guerre for Hezbollah—or a group that would later become part of Hezbollah[1]—receiving help from the Islamic Republic of Iran."

    Re: For all of you fiscally conservative folks.. more and more corruption in the Mide

    Oh word?

    Oh....so...you are talking about Hezbolla and the creation of the state of Israel....which we had NOTHING to do with, nor support in ANY way.....Who was president in 1983? why didnt we finish the job? how come hezzbolla still exists?

    Oh...and military targets in my opinion, are part of the dangers of having a militarty and are threats to be attacked, civilian targets are, by law, off limits.

    I keep forgetting how Iran and Hezbolla attacked us on 9-11.....


    lumping all muslims into a basket, and calling them the enemy is ingnorant and dangerous.

    Re: For all of you fiscally conservative folks.. more and more corruption in the Mide

    Would guess that you do not have sons.. or know anyone who was killed in Iraq... this is the most idiotic statement of all time.. never mind the 30 K injured warriors, and the 100K women and children are killed, this is all much worse than a stimulus package..

    The right values life only until birth, and then f.. ck em.. this speaks volumes about your value system, which is a little lower than whale shyt..

    That would be the incident that Reagan did not respond to.. instead he withdrew the Marines.. some say that gave credence to rise of Hezbollah.. what a limp dycked president he was.

    Actually the 23 scholarships were given to her grandchildren, grandnephews and the children of her aides in violation of anti-nepotism rules.
    Rep. Johnson admits to awarding relatives CBC scholarships
    Those scholarships deprived 23 other worthy students of a scholarship.
    But I guess you don't think there's anything wrong with it..............
    I'll bet your tune would be different if there was an R after the Congressman/Congresswoman's name.

    For the record and back on topic, Afghanistan is a ungovernable cesspool and I'd be happy if we simply left and took Karzai's security detail with us, leaving him to his own protection.....

    Nah, I'd feel the same way - but I'd still say it pales in comparison with war contracts.

    Re: For all of you fiscally conservative folks.. more and more corruption in the Mide

    Seems as though the reasoning of the right is as follows...

    Ok to lie about a war that led to 4K+ soldiers dead, over 30K injured at a cost of a trillion dollars...

    Ok for over 100K Iraqi women and children killed (collateral damage)

    Ok for the US to completely destroy its infrastructure

    Ok to destabilize the entire mideast

    Ok for Defense Contractors/Military Industrial Complex to steal and defraud billions from the US..

    Ok for the US to have spent over 10% of the money alloted for the reconstruction of Iraq (after we destroyed the country needlessly) on projects that will never be used.. would like to know the breakdown of who did what.

    All is justified and good because alleged law breaking activity has occurred by some members of congress... because this congresswoman allegedly committed this crime, all of the above is justified...

    This WTF moment brought to you by the right.. each and every day your family is getting gang raped by the "power elite" and most do not even know it... because some congresswoman allegedly broke the law what occurred in Iraq if fine and dandy... :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

    Obviously Obama's spending is causing an even further increase. That's common sense, isn't it?

    Did you get beyond the headline of this "editorial" which for most of us means one person's opinion.. it is about, how Bush's tax cuts should be extended.. not much else..

    The stimulus cost more, but no one speaks to the legacy costs for 4K + dead soldiers benefits to their families, or the legacy costs of 30K + wounded warriors... these costs are staggering.

    War is great business ... but is this any different than the moneyy we send to foreign countries for aid that ends up in crooked pockets? Money = corruption and it always has and it always will. These companies donate millions for a reason.

    Re: For all of you fiscally conservative folks.. more and more corruption in the Mide

    And the money they donate is taxpayer money.. as the many are exclusively funded by tax dollars...

    Sounds as though this is all good, and we should just accept this corruption as it has always happened.

    War is not great business, by the way... that is an adage that has been continually disproven.. if war was such great business, there would not have been this recession.

    More Iraqis would have died as a direct result of the brutal tactics of Saddam Hussein.

    Re: For all of you fiscally conservative folks.. more and more corruption in the Mide

    Cannot believe this argument, but americans were killed and maimed unnecessarily... not including a trillion dollars wasted...

    The same thing could have been accomplished by a good old fashioned regime topple by the CIA/Mossad...

    Are you trying to be funny?? Making light of the sacrifice of the troops is hardly a patriotic gesture...

    And as a country we have the blood of 100K women and children on our hands (collateral damage)..

    The defense contractors have made billiions in profits and in fraud..

    You seem to be glad that defense contractors are ripping off billions from the US Taxpayer?? Is that what the right calls fiscal conservatism??

    None of this has been or ever will be good...
